You can read American Airlines' Twitter account almost every day and view complaints about lost luggage -- and now Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's bodyguards can testify about the experience firsthand.
Numerous media reports reveal that Netanyahu and his bodyguards arrived in Washington, D.C., yesterday on an American Airlines flight, but one of the the bodyguards' bags -- with four pistols inside --ended up in Los Angeles with at least one of the weapons missing.
Netanyahu and Obama met at the White House Tuesday and American Airlines' luggage-handling practices was not on the formal agenda.
U.S. Dept. of Transportation statistics released in June showed that American had the most mishandled baggage reports per passenger among major U.S. airlines.
American, according to the DOT's numbers from April 2010, the latest available, had 3.08 mishandled baggage reports per 1,000 passengers.
That was an improvement from April 2009, when American recorded 4.65 per 1,000 passengers.
